The Hope Anchor Hotel description

Hotel/Conference Centre

Medium (1-150)

Rye hotels are famous for their character and charm in this beautiful Medieval Town and most if not all are listed buildings and all with their own character and charm.We are a traditional privately owned Hotel in Rye and have been welcoming guests for over thirty years, making us one of the longest owned family hotels in Rye. We pride ourselves on a warm and welcoming atmosphere with excellent Customer service.

The hotel dates back to the 17th Century and is one of the smallest hotels in Rye with thirteen en suite bedrooms within the hotel, two Apartments and a two hundred year old Fisherman’s Cottage outside, our restaurant serves local fresh fish from Rye Bay and meat and produce from Romney Marsh, Rye and the surrounding areas.

Un-like most of the other hotels in Rye, we are not only situated in the heart of the Citadel along side cobbled streets and crooked cottages, but we also have outstanding views of Quayside, Romney Marsh, Camber Castle and the sea.

For the last six years we have been voted the No 1 hotel in Rye on TripAdvisor for hotels in Rye and top five in East Sussex thanks to all the great guest comments we have received.
